The tory la told of nn nbbo of the
feeventccnth century who was no de
formed In flgmo nn ho vrat ridiculous
in drcse, nml ns sensitive about his
physical deformity ns ho wn vnln of
his eccentric attire, that while nerving
mass one morning he observed, n smllo
of contempt on the fnco of one of tho
courtiers present nnd determined to
avenge himself by serving n process
upon him fdr appearance I" court tho
The offender, M. do Lnsson by name,
knowing that things would go hard
.with him unless ho could, show eomo
reason for his mirth, made n hasty
sketch of the hunchback nbbo, exag
gerating In slzo tho six btnek caps nnd
tho waistcoats in which he was wont
to appear, and when he wnu solemnly
asked to shew cause for his unseemly
mirth and Indignity to the holy church
he suddenly displayed beforo his Judges
the caricature of the nbbo ns his "ex-
-, cusc." Tho likeness wbb bo excellent
,' and the cartoon so grotesque that the
entire court fell to laughing, nnd the
accused was liberated without n reprl
This is tho first authentic cano of the
, power of the cartoon in' it ball of Jus
tice", but It Illustrates the powcFof the
pencil In depleting tho rolltes of tho
foolish and the affectations of the arti
ficial. There Is no telling M-lieii tho nrt of
caricature began. There arc n number
of grotesques tlint hnvo come down to
us from earliest Egyptian times. The
Greeks employed pictures to emphasize
their, Bhtire," and bo did tup Romans,'
All through the middle nges there were
numberless examples of "grotesque
rlcs" which, curiously enough, were
used la enforcing the doctrines of tho
church by means of satirizing the devil.
But the eighteenth century was tho
heyday of the curtoon.
Beginning in France nnd overrunning
into Holland and thence across the
channel Into England, tho flood of cari
caturists carried everything before It,
nnd It is safe to tmy that we read the
history of tho times with clearer vision
and with more accuracy of detail for
the mirror which caricaturists held up
to rcllcct the striking, peculiarities of
the men und events passing before It.
Gntttler mentions a Spanish cartoon
ist. Francisco Gayn y Luclcutcs. u mix
turo of Rembrandt, Wutteau nml Rn.
belnls, who preceded the two great car
icaturists of the latter hair of the
eighteenth century. Georgo Crulkshank
in England and M. Chariot in France.
Chariot Is known ns the father of mod
ern social caricature and holds as good
title to his position as does Phlllpau to
.that or tho frtthcr of comic journalism,
MVlth Le Charivari, the strongest paper
of Its kind. Then came Punch In Eng
land, which still retains its subtitle of
tho Loudon Charivari, for yenrs the
faithful If not tho most highly polished
reflector of British life. Upon Its staff
, John Lurch. Richard Ddyle. John Fen
nlel, -deorge du Marnier and a dozen
men. of lesser name kept Great Britain
in good humor for two generations.
It has been reserved for America,
however, to bring forth a now race of
caricaturists, which for luck of a, better
tltlo may be called the personal car
toonists, men who seize upon tho char
acteristics of an individual and so ex
aggerate them that the subjects of tho
cartoons ar known by tho most proml
ncnt features In their physical, mental
er moral makeup.
True there was one man In London a
hundred years ago. Glllray by name,
who had this faculty of dissecting his
subject until he found bis weakest
point und theu unmercifully pricking it
with his drawing pencil, but with him
tho race died out, to be reincarnated In
America. Glllray was a close observer
of people and events. He would sit in
his publisher's window and watch tho
fops of the court as they passed and
fasten in bis memory every feature by
which n man would be recognized by
his acquaintances. Ho remembered ev
ery story that related to tho traits of
character of those iu tho public eye,
aud the St James street of 1800 is
faithfully reproduced In his art
Fcrhaps we Americans look at tho
droll side of life more than other "peo
ple, but certain it Is wo have" more and
better cartoonists than elsewhere. Tho
very quickness with which we see the
point of a Joke demands equal facility
in portraying drollery in a cartoon. We
sketch boldly and leave much of tho
unnecessary detail to our slower cous
ins. Then, too, our public events hap
pen with such Btartllng rapidity that a
cartoon of yesterday's doings would be
flat today, and we must keep very
much alive nnd be ready for a political
In other words, the alert American
must have depicted in his cartoon the
very traits of character that have made
him what he Is, the quickest and
brightest of men. Thomas Nast in
